SUMMARY: ls listing files by time

silly little trick solaris plays...

use /usr/ucb/ls -rt

apparently, this ls fine tunes the timestamp more.

i should be putting /usr/ucb first in $PATH, these
files resolve so many problems.

Original Post:
We loaded 5 files in random numerical sequence into
the vitria upload directory (sequence was 3,4,2,1,5)

The Vitria log shows the delivery of the files in that
order to the destination directory, yet when we list
files using ls -tr we get 4,3,2,1,5

what do you think?
